[NTG-context] Questions to font family Pagella

Hi all,

I am doing some first tests with fonts (related with our font testing intentions)
and I found out that since 2015 there are two sets of files for pagella with the same metadata by otfinfo -i.

Eg.:

152192 /usr/local/texlive/2018/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/public/newpx/TeXGyrePagellaX-Regular.otf
144472 /usr/local/texlive/2018/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/public/tex-gyre/texgyrepagella-regular.otf

The only one difference is in the license note:
"Copyright 2013--2015 Michael Sharpe for added superior figures, letters and symbols." 
at files from newx directory.

1. 
Why the distribution (TL 2018) contains two versions of the same font family? 

2. 
How can I recognise which one was used for the document after \setupbodyfont[pagella]?

3.
On my disk I have got also one older version (1.011) of pagella (I do not where I took it from)
which contains more(!) characters than the current one (2.004) where eg. the subset of cyrillic characters is missing... 
Why the newer version contains less? 

Best wishes,

Tomáš
